So this is really what I LOVE to do. Make jewelry specifically for people, for a special purpose. This one, unfortunately, isn't so happy. It was for my sisters' sister-in-law, who was abruptly faced with a painful separation and divorce. It really blindsided her. So I wanted to reach out with some sisterly love and support. I used the sterling silver affirmation charm "strength", and wired up some gemstone chips: carnelian for strength, aquamarine for calm, amethyst for insight and wisdom (and her son's birthstone), and a few Swarovskis for sparkle. (They seem to be my trademark!) I used a delicate little chain to lasso the charm, and made it just long enough so that when she looks down- maybe in a tough moment- it's right there. Reminding her that we love her and she can stay strong through the hardest times. Love you, J.
